We highly recommend this beautiful home,set in a stunning rural location with extensive views on all sides of the Co.Down beautiful countryside.The accommodation was of a very high standard--large bedroom with modern en suite,lots of thoughtful touches to make one feel at home.breakfasts were excellent with a good choice of items.Above all ,our hosts Iris and Ernie were most welcoming and helpful.A bonus for us was the warm sunny weather which added to the experience.

Hilltop Lodge is an excellent B and B in Banbridge NI, the quality of the finishes, breakfast and view are outstanding. Breakfast is a delight and the proprietors make this venue excellent value for money.

We stayed here in August 2012 with my 5 month old daughter. Beautiful ensuite room. Amazing breakfast. Friendly and supportive owners. Fantastic views across the country side and lovely sitting room to relax in at night time. We had an amazing stay.

A superb bed and breakfast and Ernie and Iris are wonderful hosts, nothing is too much trouble. They provided details for local travel, did Internet searches etc for us and made us and our friends from Canada feel very welcome. The rooms are spacious, spotless and have amazing en-suite wet rooms. The breakfasts are so filling, freshly cooked to order and keep you full for the day. Will definitely go back if in that area.

Hello,
We would like to thank you for the recent review of Hilltop Lodge. It's not only a boost to the business but also for our moral as well. It was good that within the few days you stayed you were able to take your friends to different places and catch up with other friends also.
As it was your second visit we felt completely comfortable with you and very soon the same with your two friends.
We wish you all the best for 2013 and hope to see you in the not too distant future,

Hilltop Lodge

You here some horror story's when it comes to B&B's and also some "it was ok for a B&B", but this is why I'm writing. From the minute I booked you could feel the friendly and caring attitude of both Iris & Ernie... I stay in Hotels with my job almost every week, so I class myself as a seasoned traveller. Hilltop lodge will go to the top of my list, I honestly couldn't fault it, from the Irish breakfast cooked by Ernie which I decided on the content from a Menu having everything I wanted to the pleasant hospitality and conversation of Iris. My room was light and cosy, underfloor heating is a nice touch as is the rain head walk in shower... Honestly if you are looking for a base to work from Hilltop is your only choice, and if you want a Family holiday that will show you the gorgeous Ireland then Hilltop is again the choice.. I will be taking my Family there in the new year...... Beautiful place....beautiful people......thank you..

An excellent experience.The ensuite bedroom was excellent very spacious and spotless, as was the rest of the house. Iris and Ernie are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble.The views are exceptional (when there is no mist) and it is hard to believe you can see five counties.

Excellent B&B with wonderful food and welcoming friendly hosts. We would happily recommend this to anyone. The rooms were clean, spacious with great bathrooms. There was a lovely communal lounge for relaxing in the evenings and wonderful views of the countryside and mountains. There was a multitude of options for breakfast and it all tasted great. Thank you Iris and Ernie.
